We trekked out north of town on a glorious fall day, the aspens somehow miraculously at their peak, despite some earlier session reschedules. She doesn’t love being the sole focus of attention but she’s been tortured by me and my camera her whole life so I’m sure she just settled into a familiar routine! 🙂
Her giggle and her humor have always been contagious (check out the portrait of her at aged 2 below ⬇️ and you’ll see what I mean) and YET… her steely stare can make you feel like you’re in trouble, like whatever you’re doing might go down on your permanent record. She’s so intimidating when she does that!
She brought along her guitar. Oh, the sound of her playing, the rich notes wafting across the meadow, made my blood pressure drop – everything right with the world. And of course, her puppies needed some time in front of the camera, so peaceful (and remarkably compliant!) in her arms.
Can’t believe this moment is here. She graduates next month and in the fall, heads off to study marine biology at the University of Hawaii! Congratulations, Sloane!
